Like most piercings, James starts by cleaning the area around the piercing. Then he uses his fingers to find the placement of the holes for the piercing on the inside of the nostril, and marks it. Next a clamp is used to hold the skin in place, and James checks to make sure the holes align on both sides of the septum. It’s go time!
The piercing needle is pushed through. More often than not, your eyes will water with a septum piercing, as you can see in the video. The clamp is removed and the piercing is ready for jewelry insertion. James puts a cork on the sharp end of the needle, and pushes it through the piercing. The jewelry then follows behind… phew! We’re done.
“It actually looks worse than it felt. It didn’t hurt that bad at all!” Stefanie said of her experience.
Stefanie’s initial jewelry choice is unique in that it sits inside the nostril, making it easier to hide for her to hide at work if need be.
